Following the announcement of the new draft library strategy, GCC will be conducting a new six-week consultation process starting today (30th January).
As part of this process, a series of consultation roadshows (where people can ask questions about the plans and give feedback/have discussions in person) have been announced:
An online survey will also be available at http://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/libraries2012 Paper copies of the same survey should be readily available in all libraries, or can be downloaded here: GCC_0018 QUESTIONNAIRE_PRINT
GCC have promised that this will be a two-stage process, with views heard and data gathered during consultation shaping and developing the current draft proposals.
It it easy to think ‘why bother’ after so many service users’ views were ignored and dismissed last time round, but this is GCC’s chance to get things right, so we would encourage as many people as possible to take part in the consultation, and spread the word to others too.
